This No-Bake Orange Yogurt Cheesecake is citrusy, light and rich. It takes 10 minutes to whip up the cheese filling with a food processor. Simply place it in the refrigerator to set for at least 2 hours or overnight. To make the yummy cheesecake look more impressive, I used canned mandarin oranges with the jelly topping. Definitely a keeper for any occasion, and perfect for hot days too!
